Its not allergies. Its not phlem.. or w/e. but its driving me INSANE.. and its bothering the people around me. i have to do it about every.. 10 to 30 seconds. It just recently started.. about a month ...
I got my lips and eyebrows waxed last week AND started using some new skin care products in a line I already use. I got a rash around my lips after the waxing with small red bumps/also a little ...
My nose won't stop running. Help?
Before I go to the doctor, I thought I'd ask on here first-
For the last 3 years, my nose has been running constantly. I am never far from a box of tissues, I always have tissues stuffed in coat pockets; jean pockets; drawers; glove box; everywhere! If I go out anywhere, regardless if it's warm or cold, my nose runs and I freak out if I don't have tissues handy. I can't sit down to watch TV without a tissue at the ready. It has become so much part of my life now, that everyone jokes about it.
I have looked it up in medical books but it doesn't really tell me what is wrong? I know it could be allergies (I have got many pets and have had animals since I was a kid but it is only in the last few years that this has started happening) but I am very close to going to the docs to have it sorted cuz it is driving me up the wall.
Any help would be really great?
YOU NEED TO GO TO AN ALLERGY DOCTOR TO FIND OUT WHAT YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO.
I ALSO SUFFERED FROM A RUNNY NOSE FOR AT LEAST 10YRS. I MADE AN APPOINTMENT AND THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBED SOME MEDICATIONS AND INFORMED ME OF WHAT I WAS ALLERGIC TO ACCORDING TO MY RESULTS FROM AN ALLERGY TEST. MY RUNNY NOSE IS NO LONGER AN EVERDAY PROBLEM ANYMORE.
Yeah! like major allergies, Dude. And you've put up with this for 3 yr. Go to Doc do not stop go
I used to suffer the same affliction, its not pleasent, your right about allergies, it could be dust, dust mites, etc, the thing that cured me was to get my sinuses done, I know that wasn`t pleasent either but it worked, see the doctor asap, dont suffer any longer
As long as your fit enough to run after it, your all right!!!.
Try taking some over the counter claritin for a few days, if problem isnt resolved, see your doctor. You may need something stronger like allegra or zyrtec. Possibly a steroid nose spray. Could just be allergic to your pets, but medication should help alleviate your symptoms.
Ok, this is not intended to alarm you but when you said you'd had the problem for 3 years i thought i should mention this.
I once watched an episode of that hospital programme they used to show on BBC1 in the mornings (Nadia Sawalha used to present it). ANyway there was a woman on there with the same problem - persistent runny nose. She couldnt figure out what was causing it. Turned out she had brain fluid leaking from her head through her nose!!
She had an operation and problem was sorted.
Its not necessatil what you have of course, maybe you just have allergies, but its a possibility.
Doctors should shed some light - hope docs visit goes well.
It sounds like you have hayfever. It can be caused by pollen in the air, dog hairs, dust or anything like that.
I suffer from the same thing, although it has gotten better over the years. They say you grow out of it, i'm still waiting!!
You can get sprays that will help you of even tablets. You should go to your doctor and see what the best thing is for you.
There are good tablets out called Piriton, you can only take one a day, but take them at night cos they can make you drowsy. But talk to your doctor, it would be worth it.
shove some kleenex up in those holes and go to a doctor
People with sinus problems (including me!) have had great success with a Neti Pot. It involves pouring salinated water through the nostrils, effectively 'washing' the nasal cavities.
It sounds odd, and I'm usually the first person to pooh-pooh alternative treatments, but it genuinely did make an improvement for me - wouldn't be without my Neti now!
I ordered mine online (it was relatively inexpensive), and you can find more details on the practice here; http://www.jalanetipot.com/
Of course, I recommend visiting your doctor first to clarify exactly what the problem is.
